Upton Hill, more often in the past known as Upton's Hill, lies between the border of Arlington County and Fairfax County, Virginia. The hill is conical in shape with its summit lying at the intersection of Wilson Boulevard and McKinley Street. A large water tower now occupies and marks its summit.
A local stream called Four Mile Run defines the hill's northern and eastern extent.
The hill is named for Charles H. Upton, a newspaper editor from Ohio who built his home there. Upton's Hill was the sight of several historical events during the American Civil War.
